CityBreaks Munich Episode 09 Standing up to Hitler
Hear about some of the Munich citizens who spoke out against Hitler, often with fatal consequences: the journalist Fritz Gerlich and churchmen Alfred Delp and Rupert Mayer. Discover too where, in today’s Munich, you can find traces of them still. More in-depth coverage is then given to the White Rose Resistance Group, Munich students led by Hans and Sophie Scholl, whose pacifist leafleting campaign ended in a show trial in a Munich courtroom and execution without appeal that same afternoon. There is material on their actions and their ideas, followed by pointers to the places in Munich where they are memorialised and an indication of the ways in which their plea for tolerance and respect for human dignity outlived them.
Carl Albert Fritz (Michael) Gerlich (15 February 1883 – 30 June 1934) was a German journalist and historian, and one of the main journalistic resistors of Adolf Hitler. He was arrested and later killed at the Dachau concentration camp.
